Research: Enhancing the Quality of Patient Care

Successful medical research is a complex process requiring close collaboration of basic scientists, physicians, epidemiologists and data analysts, state-of-the-art instruments, resources to protect the interest of patients who volunteer to participate in clinical trials, and a strong commitment on the part of the Institution.

All of these elements are represented in the Maine Medical Center Research Institute. We have world-class researchers working on the most advanced biomedical problems. We have been successful in bringing the benefits of new discoveries to our patients and to the world, and we have an ongoing commitment to continue to be one of the very best biomedical research communities.
